Chasing stage victories on Istrian Spring Classic


Team Adria Mobil Classic is back in Croatia, for the next and also last of the spring classics. Stage race Istrian Spring Classic will start on Thursday and finish on Sunday. There are 29 European teams on the start.


Race will start with a short time-trial and continue with three classic stages. The most interesting will be second and third one, with finish to Labin and Oprtalj, respectively.

Sports director Branko Filip had this to say about the race: “We will have Radoslav Rogina, Marko Kump, Jon Božič, Gašper Katrašnik, Žiga Grošelj & David Per on the race. Our focus is on the individual stages, as I don’t expect my cyclist on the top in the overall rankings. But you never know…”

Stage 2 / 15/3: Poreč – Labin, 161 km
Stage 3 / 16/3: Vrsar – Oprtalj, 161 km
